Award Amount

An $8,000 award, exclusively for students who attend Catholic high schools, will be distributed in increments of $2,000 annually for four years. This award will be added to either our Public Tuition Rate or University Scholarship, which average more than $22,000 annually, for eligible students. This means students from Catholic schools can anticipate a total scholarship of more than $96,000 ($24,000 annually).
